My Problem

Battery was going out on my touch 3g and I have replaced 2 on Ipod video 30 g.

My Fix

Bought new battery @ Amazon, but failed to include touch in the description (touch 3g). Bought right battery from Ifixit. Unfortunately I watched the videos on Utube to replace battery which did not explain that there are tabs to be released on the screen ( Ifixit diagrammed it well ) Bought new screen on Amazon. Looked at ifixit diagrams to remove lcd gently ( mine must have extra glue ) Bought new lcd and second screen at Ifixit. I am currently listening to my new Ipod touch 5. I'm not sure how soldering the battery on the 3g touch will go, but at least the pressure is off.

My Advice

My advice is get the battery professionally replaced. I would have saved some money. If you do it yourself look at the material on Ifixit and when taking out the lcd make sure there is absolutely zero flex in the screen. After you pry up the end they say to start at, there is still glue on the sides. I need to start a show similar to renovation realities but for electronics repair.

My Problem

Battery on last legs....

My Fix

The repair guide was pretty good. This replacement is not for the amateur. You must be patient AND you must be comfortable with soldering. If both are not descriptive of your gifts/talents, I highly recommend that your product professionally repaired!

My Advice

1. Opening a iPod requires grit and gall. Patience and methodical care are a must...

2. The description for removing the metal LCD cradle are lacking....there are retainer clips on each long side that must be bent in towards the center of the iPod to remove the cradle.

3. I cannot stress this one enough....the screws are !@#$% to remove without stripping them out. I had two go this route, which I then needed to drill out to remove the LCD cradle. Not a fun prospect.

My Problem

Battery not holding charge for longer than 1 day.

My Fix

Haven't done it yet don't like loosing music on itouch. Lol. Have done twice before on other iPods which went successfully.

My Advice

Yes don't be nervous, don't be nervous. Once you open it your committed so you might as well finish. Then just sit back and pray. Sorry, I mean is back and listen. Lol

My Problem

My battery was lasting less than a day with very minimal use. It was replace the battery or leave it plugged in for use, so I gambled the money for a battery replacement, in spite of the predicted difficulty. My previous repair of an iPod Mini was successful, but the Gen 3 is less repair friendly.

My Fix

Repair went as described in the instructions. I failed to adequately protect the foil-thin connection to the touch screen during the battery extraction and it tore half-way. After completing the repair, the iPod worked, except for the touch screen.

My Advice

Consider getting a 90 degree angled part that the body and touch screen can be taped or affixed to while replacing the battery. Laying the screen down flat creates an overly delicate situation and the manipulations required to remove the display and battery tend to generate twisting and movement of the body - damaging the touch screen connective foil.

My Problem

We were too trusting of a CL seller, and believed her story about why the ipod wouldnt turn on (she said that she has to abort the software restore process in order to meet us at the appointed time, so it wouldn't turn on) , 'but it works just fine, trust me'. Yeah, right. It works just fine as long as it's plugged in.

My Fix

It went smoothly...the hardest part was opening the case. Directions in the guide were well-ordered and easy to follow. I have to admit, though, that I did depart from the guide at one crucial point. Once I got to the point of de-soldering and then re-soldering the battery connections, I took it to a local small electronics job-shop here in my town and paid them $10 to do that part. They had the proper tools and experience to do that fine, close work.(They used a scope) I would highly recommend anyone who is the least bit concerned about the soldering part to take that route.

My Advice

Just what I said- find an electronics place to do the actual solder work, if possible. Other than that, if you can read and follow instructions, you can have a sweet sense of satisfaction at a job you did yourself. Besides, don't you really want to see for yourself what that thing looks like inside?

My Problem

I use the iTouch daily, to listen Pandora and read the newspaper.

My Fix

The tools were broken before the screen removal.

My Advice

Be patient, and remove the screen carefully. Excellent instructions (step by step).

My Problem

Most expensive for me, anyway. my 3rd gen 64GB ipod went through a complete wash cycle. It started in my jeans pocket and ended up in the bottom of the washtub. After soaking in rice for a week, still no joy, so I took it apart to see all the pretty guts. Then left it sitting on the counter--in pieces--for 9 months. After it failed to spontaneously reproduce I decided to put it back together. Plugged it into outlet with power adapter and zOMG!!! It came on! But it wouldn't turn on if unplugged nor when connected to computer. Only hooked to mains power. Helpful people here suggested replacing the battery.

Sorry, no heroic tales of single-handedly fending off legions of rabid lemmings using nothing but the Lightsaber app on my iPod Touch (lemmings aren't too bright...)

My Fix

Instructions were dead-on. Repair went perfectly, not a single hitch. Desoldered old battery, soldered new battery in and it was golden.

Sadly, the new battery did not fix my lack of wi-fi. so it's kind of a hybrid Classic/Touch iPod: All the joys of a Touch, all the wi-fi of a Classic. oh, well. Still a lot cheaper than $400 for a new device.

My Advice

be absolutely certain to follow the directions! I got stupid and nearly ruined my screen by not using the spudger at the *correct* location, ie, *between* the clips. Stupid!

My Problem

Ipod touch got wet and never recovered after drying out thoroughly. Can't get the device to show any life. Normal reset procedure shows no activity at all.

My Fix

I thought the battery may be dead, so I replaced it. Did not help.

I did tear off the digitizer flex circuit in the process. Wow is that delicate! I have years of experience designing and assembling kapton flexes, and I have never seen such a thin and delicate flex as the ipod touch digitizer.

My Advice

It would have been helpful to have a mechanical cross section diagram of the ipod touch assembly to show how the various parts are attached. It would have made it easier removing the digitizer panel.

My Problem

The iPod was one year old, but was used too often. The battery wasn't holding its charge for more than a day - even without using it!

My Fix

I follow your guide, and to my surprise it wasn't too hard. The soldering part was a bit challenging but everything went good. Now the battery lasts like the new one.

My Advice

Try to remove the screen patiently. It might fell apart if you push too hard. It's a good thing if you solder the battery contacts before you set it in the glue that was left over in the metal parts. Overall, it's not a hard process, just a slow one. Good luck!

My Problem

I accidentally left my iPod on my patio overnight, and apparently, it rained a little bit. When I tried turning it on, it was completely dead. I put it in a bag of rice for 3 days, but it was still dead.

My Fix

The repair went perfectly. I ordered a new battery on a Monday, and received it on Wednesday. Thursday morning, it took about an hour to install the new battery, and the install went very smoothly.

My Advice

The only suggestion I have is maybe some helpful hints on reassembling the iPod Touch. It was a little tricky getting the display and cable back together.
